What we're about

Welcome to the Capitol Hill Writing Meetup, a chance to schedule out a specific time in the week to get out and get your writing done away from the distractions of home. Whether you're a novelist, poet, journalist, blogger, or anything else, if you're writing, come join us! Please note that, because of the variety of writers and writings attending, we have no critique or reading element to this group. We're all about the content creation!

If you have suggestions on meetups, questions, comments, concerns, or just want to bring cupcakes, feel free to email, comment, or ask at a group meeting.
